Ekrem’s broad experience spans the fields of construction project management, project controls, project assurance, contract management, claims management, forensic delay analysis, cost control and various forms of dispute resolution. He has worked on projects in Turkey and across Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, including high-profile oil and gas, civil engineering, building and transportation projects.

He conducts various seminars on issues ranging from delay analysis, quantum, risk allocation under domestic and international forms of contracts, roles of experts in dispute resolution processes and effective management of construction contracts.
